Just received the invoice for this double rifle that I won. Nice one I think.
.577 Gustav Richter S/S Hammer Double Rifle - Pre 1898
Top lever action with back action side locks, barrels of 27,6' marked to "Gustav Richter Breslau". Barrels haves two leaf rear sight as well as folding tang mounted peep sight.
Hunting scenes engraved to action, hammers and lock plates. Horn trigger guard with
adjustment screws to triggers. Chequered fore-end and semi-pistol grip, cheekpiece and
chequered horn buttplate to stock. Mint bores, very good original condition overall. A top
grade rifle with excellent bores.

If anyone knows any info on the maker I would appreciate any and all help.

Since it's pre 1898 no import paperwork needed for the US but they said it takes 6 months to export from South Africa.

Mike,
If in your shoes I would contact one of the Wroclaw museums.
A lovely Double Rifle!
Cheers,

I know of an Emil Richter in Wroclaw/Breslau(German) that hung out his gunmaking shingle in 1865. I do wonder since the name of Wroclaw is Breslau, the German version, if it wasn't sourced from a German mechanic?

Piotr J. Bochyński would know I am sure. I think Mr. Neuberger posted his email contact in the thread below.
